Food At Augusta

Kitchen Mission Statement

We believe that food service is an integral part of our camp community. Breaking bread together helps to create a sense of community and comfort. We pledge to provide whole food that is nutritious, healthy, alive in flavor, aesthetically pleasing, and presented reverently to our guests and staff.  We are committed to providing food services that support a sustainable future.  We incorporate the community philosophy of Camp Augusta to maintain and develop a healthy social and working environment. We pledge to take a stand on many issues surrounding our food supply, creating a socially responsible environment. To this end, we strive to adhere to the following principles:

  • We strive to provide meals that are at least 92% organic.
  • The vast majority of what we serve is freshly prepared from scratch, using authentic ingredients whenever possible.
  • Menus and recipes are created by the management team based upon feedback from our campers and community. The Camp Augusta Kitchen has the unique practice of empowering cooks to make creative decisions in menu planning and meal preparation.
  • We use healthy cooking techniques such as steaming, roasting, or grilling to maintain the flavor and nutritional value of the food. We do not have a fryer.
  • We offer alternative food options for all who make requests at registration. This includes, but is not limited to; vegetarian, allergen-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan entrees.
  • We strive to provide sustainably and/or locally grown produce, dairy, bread, and meat where possible. Some of our ingredients come from just down the road!
  • Our oils and sweeteners are the highest standard available.

These principles foster many partnerships within our local community. We recognize the role we fill in these relationships and take great care to honor our partnerships.
